Act of giving

My sister told me once that you are supposed to do things because you won’t to do it. You have the desire to do action for another person so you do it not because you expect or want anything back in return.  I try to remember this when I go about my day.  I do things for people because I really want to and because I like helping people especially when I see they are in need.  Deep down inside I think everyone hopes that if one day they needed something that the person they helped would be there to help you.  When that person is not there it makes you rethink helping people and their intentions.  When it gets like this people should remember that someone always sees what you do regardless if you are recognized for it or you receive something back.  We get over blessing from the things we do and the blessing we give.

  1. I agree with you in the aspect of helping others because it does make me feel good inside as well. I do believe in doing for others just for the joy of it. I try to put myself in other people shoes. I try to think of it in the aspect of my “mother”. My mother is one of the most important people in my life so whenever I see someone in need I think to myself, how I would want someone to treat my mom. Would I want them to make jokes about her, or be little her? It is about respect as well.

  2. I think that we should help people from the kindness of our heart w/o expecting something in return. I like helping people as well but some times I forget why I should do things for others even if I know they won’t return the favor. We all need to just pay it forward and remind others to do the same. Helping others always feels good and I try to help others as often as I can even if it’s something small.
